Goodison going under the knife
The 39-year-old, who penned a contract extension at Prenton Park
in May, has suffered a tear in his cartilage.
Manager Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Merseyside: “Unfortunately
he’s going to be out for six to eight weeks.
“He’s having the operation on Thursday night and we won’t know

Moore has a selection headache at centre-back with Mark
McChrystal laid low due to a calf problem, although Ash Taylor is
expected to return to contention for the npower League One opener
